Whale was excited and ready with his idea to open a new business. The only problem was that he knew, without a doubt, that running a business alone was more stress than he could handle with his other duties. Asking around he realized that she best solution for this problem would be to find a great business partner. Someone to equally shoulder some of the responsibility. By finding a great business partner through local resources, Whale was up and running with his business in a matter of months and no longer worried about having to carry all the burden on his own.
